    I like to test out the ootb edge for a day prior to digging in on the stones.

    Only thing that I do is have some sandpaper ready to ease the spin/coil/tang if needed. Pack it in the roll and...

    Is that a super blue Zakuri? The edge steel sure doesn't that much of patina. I have a Zakura 210 petty in super blue. Haven't used it very much and it shows almost zero signs of patina.

    Here is my short take on oil v water stones:

    + Oil stones are usually pretty hard so they do not dish very fast nor need to be flattened very often. They last longer due to hardness.

    As long as the board is pretty darn flat to start with a card scrapper would work well.

    120 and a 210. I have a gesshin ginga 120 for paring and a inexpensive 210 Tojiro DP petty for the line. SS for the line is nice to have.

    Just my opinion.

    I think you pretty much nailed it. The Hiromoto should be a great knife to learn to sharpen on. Once you are able to reliably get a sharp edge with the Bester 1200 you might want to take it up...

    Holy moly! I would not have guessed half that price for the Chef's Choice.

    Light, thin, stainless and should take a get edge. The new handle will certainly give it a nice bling factor.

    Yeah- that. The frosted bead (sand?) blasted area between the kurouchi and the edge. I have a couple of Tojiro shirogami knives and a Zakuri with this finish.

    Very true. A bester 1200 and some course sandpaper on a marble tile (to flat the stone) would be a great starting stone.

    Best of luck,

    The couple of carbon Fujiwara's that I have both have strongly skewed right handed bevels (like 90/10 or more). IMHO it would take quite a bit of edge removal to flip it around to a lefty. You might...
